Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors

End Game For the Leafs

“The Toronto Maple Leafs will make the playoffs and compete for the Stanley Cup”.

This was the grand promise put forth by coach Paul Maurice. While showing such confidence is admirable, the reality of the situation is that the Leafs like last season will be scrambling for one of the final few playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.

Leafs vs Sabres: an eye opener

The negative reflux from Leaf fans after the embarassing loss to Buffalo has done a great job of hiding the true issue at hand.

Who takes Wellwoods Spot?

This is for the Leafs board. If it is on the main page i am sorry to the anti-Leaf fans, who will take offense for some reason.

So how do you replace a Kyle Wellwood? You can’t, but as the old cliche says, one mans misfortunes is another mans opportunity.

Injuries already hurting the leafs

Well, here we go again. There hasn’t even been a regular season NHL game, and the Leafs are facing a serious injury.

Leafs Training camp Questions

Questions Leaf fans are asking about the 2007-2008 season.

Leafs close to signing Salmelainen

According to Finnish website Ilta-sonomat, the Toronto Maple Leafs are close to signing free agent forward Tony Salmelainen.

How Good Can the Leafs Be?

If you have kept track of the Leafs off-season you will know that they are vastly improved from last year. They improved goaltending and scoring and kept a good blue-line intact. Many would say the Leafs overacheived last year for such a average team when teams with star power and depth like Carolina finished lower. I think that 6th place is a good prediction for the Leafs because injuries will likely show their ugly face once again.

JFJ did GOOD???? this off season

Is there any way JFJ had a good offseason?? Well look at what he did do instead of what he didnt do.

He went out and got a 40 goal scorer which the leafs definitly needed in Jason Blake

He got a better goalie than Raycroft which the fans were begging for in Vesa Toskala

He also got a 3rd/4th liner which has had a couple of 20+ goal seansons in Mark Bell

He even got a replacment backup in Clemmensen which shows in Black and White that Raycroft will be dealt at deadline.

Possibilities, Possibilities..

Most Leafs fans right now have been blowing around quite a lot of trade rumors. So I just thought I would conjure up some possible (sensible) trades that John Ferguson Jr. could do (and probably won’t because he’s John Ferguson Jr.)

Leafs Rookies
